I don't hate Helena W. Is there something I can be directed towards that warrants her fans devotion?
Check out the seventies JSA stories from All-Star Comics and Adventure Comics, both of which have been collected in trades. Also, "Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter", which collects her back-up stories from Wonder Woman.
This is such a crazy sentiment to me. Even at his worst, George Perez is better than 90% of the artists out there. There's nobody who can tell a story like this guy.
Go read your Greg Land X-Men comics.
I don't like Greg Land art either, he's also a horrible artist. Look if you like Perez art then more power to ya but I'm more into the over expressive and dynamic artist like Joe Mad, Humberto Ramos, Alvin Lee, Ale Garza, etc. that's just the type of art that I like. I can still read other books that don't have the same art (AvX, Avenging Spider-Man, Venom, Batgirl, Batwoman) but overall I like the anime-ish style of art. Its just what I'm into, artist that draw like it was the 80's, 70's. 60's, etc. are fine and all but that style is just not appealing to me
no compare the Art, sorry i coudnt find larger pics of perez's work
Consider that Perez drew that 30 years ago, after already being in the business for years, without the benefit of a multitude of artists to inspire him or derive his style from. BTW, that's from Justice League of America #200.
Perez's style is dated, yes. I recall picking up his issues of Brave and the Bold a few years ago and def thought it was the 1980's all over again. Back in the day when panels were boring his style was considered energetic but I have to admit trying to read him now makes reading a story a bit of a slog. I don't know if that is good or bad but using the B&B issues as an example, I can't say I enjoyed them more because of his style.
If I had to classify him I'd say he is more centered on dramatic slices and dynamics which is quite different than, say, Hitch's fluid style or Frank's realistic style. Taste's change and I can understand why people don't care for him as much as they used to but to say he isn't any good shows your ignorance. I personally can't stand Hitch and I find Frank's style kind of creepy, but they are both very talented artists in their own right.
